Thousands of people were evacuated from the Chester Zoo in the UK on Sunday, July 5 because of an escape attempt by chimpanzees. About thirty of the intelligent primates had escaped from their enclosure into a food preparation area where they ate their fill. Zoo officials claim that no patrons were in danger, but it was a precaution to evacuate the area. The chimps have since been returned to their enclosure, and a blacksmith has come to check the locks and bars. The zoo was open for business on Monday.
